doily dilettante

they are everywhere right now!  on shirts, purses, lampshades, scrapbook pages, other art mediums...the list goes on and on.  and i couldn't be happier about it:)  love doilies; simply love them.  a year ago or so, i found this pretty piece in a thrift store for 3 or 4 dollars (which i thought was a lot!) until i saw one like it on etsy that sold for around $35, described as "art noveau"...

notice the pretty velvet trim on the glass - it appears that this lovely doily was simply placed between two round pieces of glass and glued around the edges.

i have alternately loved this and not liked it all since i bought it.  but recently i feel less fickle - and i think we'll have a longterm relationship;)

more doilies from my stash

now look at these!!!  aren't they just so tempting and inspiring and happy?!?  these came to me all the way from the chip chop shop, a new and fun etsy shop in australia.  (more on that in a minute!)

hand dyed (and just mouthwatering, aren't they?)

i'll be using these in my scrapping and other craft projects

here are some crochet trims from the same shop - i couldn't wait to get these in the mail:)

leann, the owner of this embellishment/trim etsy store, is having a giveaway on her blog!  she is offering doilies and her exclusive chipboard shapes, along with a few other beautiful embellies...what a wonderful crafty giveaway:)

I love the colorful ones and how they're stored in the jar!

Isn't that the coolest way to preserve a doily? I would have never thought about putting it between glass, but I will now!
The colored doilies are just too sweet. I know these will end up in some amazing projects.
